Streambar Pro Connect to Receiver?

Is it possible to connect the Streambar Pro to an audio receiver? I have an expensive surround sound system with speakers in the ceiling and walls, and I'd like to be able to continue using them with the Streambar.

Thanks for the post.

The Roku Streambar will not be able to connect to an AVR. The device will connect directly to your TV.

Re: Streambar Pro Connect to Receiver?


I was quite shocked to find out after searching this forum and reading your response that the Streambars cannot be connected to an AV Receiver.  How could that be missed from Roku?  MANY of us sometimes use our AV Receivers for surround sound vs. the Steambar.  It's nice to be able to use either.  Why is there no digital optical output on the Streambar??  So my AV Receiver cannot be used with the Streambar?   Is there any Roku solution that allows connection to an AVR?  This is a big issue and I suppose I will have to look for another solution vs. Roku.  I would like to use the Roku if possible.  Please let me know if there is a solution.  Thank you!

I took am amazed that this is not possible.

Though my situation is a little different, I have a whole house, multiple input receiver.

I would like to play music videos on the television while being able to hear it around the house and outside.
